I particularly like the way he creatively uses subdued surreal pastel shades, in interesting translucent textures for the background of most of his works. It brings to attention the main subject of the painting so easily. It's simple, readable, colorful, textured and storied art all at the same time. It's almost relieving and refreshing to see easily understandable art amidst a chaos of so many contemporary works these days, where the observer can seldom understand the message (if any) behind the art work. But having said that, in the end, art is art and it is beautiful no matter what format. Right?
